In humanitarian interventions, the adequate treatment of information is a vital stage for operations and for all parties involved, especially in emergency-stricken and medical crisis scenarios. Yet, general guidelines on data protection in the humanitarian action are constantly under work, adapting to new practices and use of data in the sector. Thus, many organizations have their own regulations on data responsibility, generating a lack of uniformity on practices for data collection in humanitarian response. How can organizations contribute to general guidelines aimed to ensure responsible practices for data protection? Which are the good practices that can be applied for the management of sensitive/personal data by humanitarian organizations? What are the challenges laid ahead for organizations?
